Les origines de Fontevraud – Bande son

LES ORIGINES DE FONTEVRAUD est un court-métrage animé commandé par l’abbaye de Fontevraud (France).
Le film est projeté dans l’abbaye, comme introduction à la visite de la crypte de l’église.


Pour voir le court-métrage, c’est ici : 


La talentueuse
Eve Deroeck s’est occupée de l’animation et de la réalisation, et nous a confié la supervision sonore et musicale du projet.

LES ORIGINES DE FONTEVRAUD est le premier projet entièrement créé/interprété/enregistré/mixé au studio musical de REANIMATION, par Yann Deval, Balir Ben Amor et JP Dassonville.

La composition musicale a été étroitement liée à l’animation du film, l’une influençant l’autre…
Le premier jet musical a été conçu sur l’animatic du film, puis Eve a animé chaque plan en collant au plus proche de cette maquette musicale.
Enfin, nous avons réalisés les enregistrements finaux des instruments sur le montage définitif.

Nous avons essayé d’éviter les clichés autour de l’abbaye (chants grégoriens), cherchant plutôt à accentuer l’aspect ludique de l’animation par l’utilisation d’instruments décalés (scie musicale, accordéon, percussions…).

La composition est construite autour de trois voix de cors qui s’enchevêtrent pour donner un ton épique à la construction de l’abbaye.

Tous les instruments ont été joués sur des instruments acoustiques par des musiciens :
scie musicale, glockenspiele, cors, buk, castagnes, rattle, vibraslap et percussions diverses, basse électrique, guitare classique, accordéon… (à l’exception du grand-orgue et des marimbas, joués via des plugins VST).

 

Director/Animation: Eve Deroeck

R//005 – Speechless

The R // videos are a testing ground for experimentations of new techniques (and ancient too),
following a constraint or theme.
This time, we had to deal with two constraints: the theme « Speechless », and a single day of production. Enjoy!

R // 004 : Bâchez la queue du wagon taxi avec les pyjamas du fakir

The R // videos are signed by each of the reanimators independently.
They’re a testing ground for experimentations of new techniques (and ancient too),
following a constraint or theme.

This time, we had to deal with three constraints: using the MIDI data contained in the music file, a « cadavre exquis » process between the four reanimateurs, and a single day of production. Enjoy!

They’re a testing ground for experimentations of new techniques (and ancient too),
with only one constraint or theme.

PERSIFLEUR // Making-of


Persifleur // Interactive Music Video


The idea of this interactive video came up in december 2011, based on a very simple concept : let the user “draw the music”.

Since then and until the public release of the video innovember 2013, there has been many steps:

Creating the typographies:
every single word in the song is hand drawn (using ink, brushes, or pen).

- Then we scanned the words, and animated them using After Effects,
following the intonations of the voice and instruments.

- Last but not least, the programming.
The animations are injected into the program, so that it reacts to the user’s actions.

The video was developped in Java using Processing.
The source code is available here.

It was built into a Web App thanks to ProcessingJs added to HTML5 / CSS / Javascript / PHP.

More infos to come…
